1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.

1 Let the Lord be praised. I will give praise to the Lord with all my heart, among the upright, and in the meeting of the people.

2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

3 His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

3 His work is full of honour and glory; and his righteousness is unchanging for ever.

4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.

4 Certain for ever is the memory of his wonders: the Lord is full of pity and mercy.

5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.

5 He has given food to his worshippers; he will keep his agreement in mind for ever.

6 He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.

8 They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
